Tonight’s the night! The ’90s will be alive and well at the State Fair Grandstand this evening with back-to-back performances by Semisonic and the Jayhawks tonight, plus sets by Dessa, Jeremy Messersmith, and recently added opening act Lucy Michelle.
If you’re at the fair today, be sure to head down to Carousel Park before the show; 89.3 The Current will be broadcasting live from 3-5 p.m. with hosts Mark Wheat and Mary Lucia.
Musicians performing at MN Music-on-a-Stick will be stopping by to chat with Mark and Mary at the park (which sits just outside the Grandstand), including Dessa, Dan Wilson and Jacob Slichter of Semisonic, Jeremy Messersmith, and Gary Louris of the Jayhawks.
